The Story: A young boy is disheartened by his parents' decision to sell his pet goat. Seeing this his friend Jaffer(Anshuman Jha) decides to help him. What happens after that is a roller coaster ride of chaotic incidents. The story revolves around the goat Shahrukh.
Performances: Asif Basra as the peer baba is exceptionally convincing. His adaptation of the character is apt. Suruchi Aulakh as the frustrated poor wife is outstanding and hilarious. Anshuman Jha as Jaffer is fit for the role and is quite good and so is Yoshika Verma as his shy girlfriend. The rest of the cast has also performed very well each delivering their role brilliantly.
On A Musical Note: The background score by Agnee is excellent. The songs are in sync with the narrative taking it forward. The choice of lyrics is interestingly smart. The sound design helps the story in keeping you engaged. The use of silence in necessary places keeps the story interactive.
Combo on Offer: A satire reflecting society without being preachy with great performances. The narrative and dialogues are simple and aptly funny. The timing of comical incidents is great while the events too are entertaining. The use of a done to death suggestion seems unnecessary but thankfully is not drawn out. The great direction takes the plot ahead breezily. Clean smooth editing keeps you engrossed. Overall it is a very interesting breezy film after which you will definitely leave the theatre smiling.
Our Verdict: We give Yeh Hai Bakrapur Claps for being realistic yet entertaining.
